I managed to sew the block together over the weekend. Now to cut the outer border & work out the order of all the 4 inch squares I cut, back to reading the instructions.
I really loved the look of the solar flare quilt, shown on Tula Pinks update, I showed it to Mum & she brought it for me. I haven’t paper foundation paper pieced for a while. It was lovely to get back into it.
This is the first set I made, I soon got back into the swing of folding, cutting & pressing.
So that’s the big square blocks done, on to the smaller ones
These blocks are triangles, so together they make quite nice squares.
So with 4 of each block made, a large quantity of squares cut, 2 from each fabric & some borders cut.
It’s time to start thinking about construction. Time to grab a coffee & read though the next lot of instructions.
This is my 3rd piece for the Royal school of Needlework’s diploma in technical hand embroidery.
Unfortunately due to lockdowns & my health issues, this has been my longest running project on the course, so far.
She is finally starting to take shape. I recently finished her nose, although I still have the highlights to add.
Finished piecing my tumbling blocks quilt, no new fabric purchased😇, so my stash is a little smaller😁.
I’m not a machine quilter, so it has joined the slow lane, of hand quilting.
My Whitework embroidery is finally finished & handed in for assessment. My own design, from my research on traditional Scandinavian patterns. The design is a combination of pulled & drawn thread techniques.
Unfortunately, it became a lockdown casualty, being left cut & the hem started for over a year. I’m overall pleased with it.
All the flowers are done. I really enjoyed this piece. It will be mounted ready for framing at some point.
Tiny poppies have been added to the corn field along with foxgloves & ragged robin.
Daisies & more poppies to follow. Better keep sewing 🪡
Getting started on the wheat field & long grass. Been having fun searching through all my green threads to find suitable ones. I love a bit of greenery.
Just finished the centre panel of the white quilt.
The trees are finally starting to take shape, one more tree trunk to go! The tree trunks are made from a old gift bag handle I found while tidying up.
